Eagerly awaited for the last two years, the superb Focus RS doesn't disappoint. With a 0-100mph dash of just 15sec, the 212bhp RS is billed as the fastest accelerating production Ford ever - but that's just the beginning of the story.
Handling is superb with virtually zero body roll and tremendous lateral grip. However, opinion is split over whether the ride is just too hard for British roads. Either way, the RS looks purposeful in it's aggressive be-spoilered Mica Blue bodywork, with the colour coded leather, chrome and alcantara interior matching it well.
The RS is probably the best hot hatch available today, and when you consider it's expected price of under £20,000 and it's limited production run of just 4500 units, it becomes an almost irresistible performance bargain.
